Swallowed Whole

It’s been eating me alive.

I can’t seem to make this feeling go away.

There’s a permanent knot in the pit of my stomach.

It follows me wherever I go.

There’s no escaping it

I’ve been falling into darkness.

I keep getting farther from the light.

I’ve been spiraling towards the cold hard ground.

    That's exactly how I feel when the bills keep coming faster than my social security. There seems to be a huge mountain left to climb.
